Of course the vast majority of people aren't sex criminals. Still, lots of couples do indulge in fantasies that involve violence. Most of the time they don't go any further with them. But sometimes they act them out, which seems to have happened in a crime committed early this year in Melbourne. The alleged perpetrator of a knifing in Fitzroy said that planning the attack on his lover's husband had improved his sex life with the woman.
Financial gain also appears to have been a motive in this case. But it seems the sexual thrill the lovers were getting from their fantasies had a lot to do with the crime ultimately being committed. It's not just love that can make people do crazy and destructive things. Sex can too!
